My Christmas Gift to You: Tishie's First Giveaway!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

As promised, I've got the details of my first-ever giveaway! Before I tell you how to join, I'd like to show you what's up for grabs. One lucky reader will get all--yes, ALL--the prizes shown here:

The wonderful people at Avon sent me all these goodies, and I really just wanna share the love! Let me break it all down for ya...

ANEW Rejuvenate Revitalizing 2-in-1 Gel Cleanser

Start off your skincare routine with this cleanser and toner in one. With continued use, it's supposed to improve skin texture and help make pores look tighter. And, since you're combining two of the three skincare steps (cleanse, tone, moisturize), you save yourself some time! It's perfect for those who are tamad to go through the entire three-step routine!

ANEW Rejuvenate Glycolic Facial

I didn't want to remove it from its plastic-covered box because I want you to get it good as new. The Glycolic Facial is a nighttime serum for "a youthful, more radiant complexion in the morning. It is an at-home substitute to a professional treatment that harnesses the power of Glycolic Acid used by aestheticians." It's supposed to reduce lines, reduce damage that can cause sallow skin tone, and help improve your skin's smoothness. To the winner, do let me know what you think of this product--it's gotten such great reviews (5 out of 5 stars!) in the US Avon website.

ANEW Clinical Thermafirm Face Lifting Cream

Avon touts this product as the "next wave in face lifting." It's their at-home answer to the thermal lift procedure. Based on a dermatologist-supervised clinical study, 76% of women who used this product showed less sagging. Hmmm, bye-bye, Botox?

Ideal Shade Liquid Foundation in Natural (SPF 10)

This medium-coverage liquid foundation has a satin finish and is dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic, allergy-tested, and oil-free. Plus, it's got sun protection--super important nowadays!

Smooth Mineral Eyeshadow in Mocha Goddess

This eyeshadow is the one in the teeny black box in the product group photo. It promises "flawless definition and highlight, the most natural way." I've always wanted to try mineral makeup (perhaps makeup artists have used it on me before, but I was just totally clueless), so lucky winner, tell me what it's like and if it's really different from regular makeup!

Smooth Minerals Lipstick in Pink Quartz and Rosy Brown (SPF 15)

Yup, I'm giving away not one, but two shades of lipstick! It's got minerals for color and sparkle, and two different shades you could match with your mood and look for the day!

Ideal Shade Loose Powder in Neutral

And finally, to finish off your whole skincare and makeup routine, I'm giving away this silky loose powder. (It's the one in the square black box in the group photo.) It's formulated with Avon's PreciseLight Technology, which combines "innovative light-adjusting pigments so skin looks natural in any light," and "Exclusive Natural match complex, which contains all the essential skin-true pigments needed to match over 98% of skin tones." It provides a matte finish without looking cakey.

Whew! That's practically an entire skincare and beauty showcase! Now, to join...

  1. As a nurse, I don't really have holidays, so I would have to say that my greatest gift this season is a day off that fell on the 24th! (thank you, oh dear manager who makes our schedule!) I got to spend Christmas eve with my family and that was pretty awesome! I'm not as fortunate come the 31st though, coz I'm on duty. Boohoo! But I'm still grateful that at least, I'm in the same country and not thousands of miles away from my quirky family!

    Fab and generous giveaway you have there, Tishie! Merry Christmas!

  2. Enter me please! I'm Bec and I follow your blog via GFC. :)

    Best Christmas gift: A Louis Vuitton wallet.


  3. Merry Christmas Tisha! You are giving so much away! I am already a follower and my answer to your question is:

    The best gift I received this Christmas is not extravagant, at all, but this Christmas I had a couple of patients come by the clinic to give their Christmas gifts. The gifts were not extravagant at all, but to receive something from them is just amazing. It's like they're telling me: "We love you Doctor Crickette" and I think they do! Hahahahahahahahaha!

  4. Merry Christmas, Tish!

    This year, the greatest gift I got is being able to see my Granny. I don't get to see her often because she lives in the States. And her doctor doesn't allow her to travel a lot because she was just installed with a pacemaker the other year, not to mention that she's already 94 y/o. But despite the circumstances, God blessed us this opportunity to be together this Christmas! May the holidays won't end yet so that we can still spend quality time together. :D


  5. This year, my boyfriend got me a 1TB external hard drive. This is the best Christmas gift I received because I asked for this. I really needed this memory stuff because I love to download movies and my favorite TV series. Sometimes my laptop would slow down due to limited memory space. So this gift is really LOVE. :)


  6. Merry Christmas Tish!

    The best gift I received this Christmas is my son IƱigo Miguel! This year, the Lord has blessed Cheng and I with a healthy baby boy. I never thought I'd be a stage parent, pero iba na pala talaga pag nandiyan na. You just can't help it. I'm so excited to play with him as he grows up. Maybe he can become the future franchise player of the warriors, hahaha!

  7. The best christmas gift that I received was a bunch of clothes for my baby. I am such a cheapskate and I know newborns outgrow their baby outfits very fast, so i don'w want to spend so much money on stuff that my baby won't be using in just 3 mos. My friends gave me their hand-me-downs and I'm happy with that. They're almost as good as new, for how can babies overuse their clothes?

  8. just blogged this, here's the link. :)

    sorry, I hit post comment before I could blog about this giveaway.

  9. Hi tisha, here's my entry:

    I got an iPod Touch in the office Christmas party raffle but that pricey gadget don't even come close to the best Christmas gift that I received this year. After 5 years and a half, my boyfriend introduced me to his family! Well he has reasons for prolonging the Meet the Parents thingy but I can't be more thankful that it finally happened this year. It was an awesome experience to spend time with his folks and instantly feel like I'm part of them.

    Merry Christmas Tisha!

    Oh here's a link to my blog post, too:

  10. oooh...I almost missed this raffle! :) what's the best gift? THE PERFECT PAIR OF CLEATS! I totally forgot I need them but my parents remembered.

    (*background: My parents never really supported 100% our frisbee-related activities. They don't tell us that though but actions speak louder than words, right? But with the gift...I think I got their nod already! Wohoo! Can't wait to try on my first ever competitive pair of cleats! It's sky blue with hints of yellow...It's kikay and I love it!) :D

  11. Christmas came early this year for me and my husband. It felt like Christmas on October 4th at 7:27 pm when I gave birth to our first born, Johan Matthew. I could not ask for anything more come Christmas Day, as Johan is already the best gift ever.

    Merry Christmas and Happy new year! And thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

  12. Found my way here through Liz's blog.
    Just this October, I started to have this love affair with Avon make-up. Their mineral stuff are just awesome. ®

  13. I'm already a follower..

    The best Christmas gift that I received is a new cellphone..

    hope to win..

  14. The best Christmas gift I received this year is being employed in the company I like so much. Though the competition is tough, it was all worth it. I'm happy that I made it and I hope I do good at it all. Hope I have nice officemates though.

  15. The best Christmas gift I received this year is the gift of life.

    Two days ago while on our way to Manila from Antique I have witnessed an actual and live accident right in front of my eyes. A motorcycle bumped to a fallen tree branch and crossed over to the opposite lane while an SUV hit him making him fall from his motorcyle to the center of the highway, there was blood everywhere. I don't know if he's still alive now, I am grateful that me and my family are now back safe in Manila.

    Sometimes we forget to say thanks to even simple things like waking up each day.

  16. tish!! i want those!! :P i'm not getting any younger, and i need all the help i can get! hahah!

    anyway, bryan gave me the best christmas gift this KINDLE e-book reader :D

    happy holidays, tish! be blessed :)

    eire (aka walkeroo) :)
